Azodicarbonamide yoga mat chemical confirmed in 500+ everyday foods and grocery items, including natural and 'healthy' products

(NaturalNews) Last week I warned the world that the global food supply was intentionaly designed to end human life, not nourish it. Popular foods have been "weaponized" and are deliberately engineered to deliver toxic, cancer-causing chemicals to everyday consumers. The effect of all this is the mass poisoning of the people; keeping them incoherent, dumbed-down, diseased and chained to the for-profit "sick care" system where disease equals profits. (See Paul Chek's video lecture which explains this in more detail.)

Today, the Environmental Working Group published a hard-hitting report providing yet more evidence in support of exactly the point I've been making. EWG researchers confirmed the presence of azodicarbonamide, the "yoga mat chemical," in hundreds of brand-name foods, including brands that promote themselves as "healthy" or "natural."

Food brands found to contain the chemical include:

- Betty Crocker
- Bimbo
- Butternut
- Earthgrains
- Fiber One
- Fresh Gourmet
- Healthy Life
- Jimmy Dean
- Little Debbie
- Nature's Own
- Pillsbury
- Roman Meal
- Roundy's
- Sara Lee
- Tyson

The complete list is published at the Environmental Working Group website.

Natural News also confirmed the presence of the chemical in foods sold by McDonald's, Chick-fil-A, Arby's, Carl's Jr. and other restaurants.

Azodicarbonamide was deliberately chosen even though it is not needed

What this list shows is that all these companies are willing to deliberately feed azodicarbonamide to their customers, often while claiming their products are "natural" or "healthy."

Vani Hari, known as the Food Babe, is credited with spearheading the grassroots campaign on this particular chemical over the last two years. At first, the effort targeted Subway, which eventually bowed to public pressure and agreed to remove the chemical at some point in the future. But from there, news began to spread as azodicarbonamide was identified in the products of other fast food restaurants and now hundreds of grocery store items.

In every one of these cases, the chemical was deliberately engineered into the foods even though it is not needed! For thousands of years, breads have been made without the chemical, and even today this chemical is rarely used in many first-world nations. But in the U.S. food supply, it is deliberately added to the most popular foods which are consumed by the masses.

Popular foods are laced with thousands of chemicals and toxic heavy metals

Azodicarbonamide is just one of thousands of other chemicals deliberately used by grocery foods manufacturers, many of which have links to cancer and other serious diseases.

For example, processed meat companies routinely use sodium nitrite, a chemical which is no doubt thousands of times more toxic than anything ever substantiated with azodicarbonamide. I've been warning about sodium nitrite and cancer for over a decade, yet nobody in the mainstream media dares cover the subject for fear that all their advertising revenues will be cut off by food manufacturers. (I wrote the first book on this subject in 2004, called "Grocery Warning.")

Believe me when I say there are far worse things in your food than azodicarbonamide! In fact, that this one chemical even surfaced into public awareness is a rarity. Rest assured the mainstream media is already rolling out hit pieces on the Food Babe and will find new ways to enforce a conspiracy of silence on other chemicals and heavy metals to make sure you never hear about them. Now that Food Babe has been highly effective at raising the alarm on this chemical, she will be aggressively targeted with efforts to discredit her work. That's how these food conglomerates play their poison games: they hire online "hit men" to disparage your character and spread lies so that they can keep their dirty little secrets about all the poison in their products.

That's why your grassroots support is so crucial in all this. Without your support of Natural News, Food Babe, the Environmental Working Group, Cornucopia and other important organizations, nobody would ever hear the truth about all the poisons they're eating!

Also, have no doubts that grassroots activism is right now rocking and shocking the world of corporate food, where executives are running around in a total panic, realizing that every single one of the chemicals they currently use can be leveraged by grassroots activists into massive boycott campaigns organized via social media. Truly, corporate food companies have lost control of the information monopolies they once held, and all their toxic secrets are going to come out one at a time.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
